Great, Eclectic Homestay in the Russian River.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many homestays over the past decade, and there's almost always a discrepancy between what the owners portray online, and what you actually find once you arrive. "Side by Side" greatly exceeded our expectations, what a great place! Interesting decor, well-outfitted kitchen, a truly great DVD selection, hot tub, grill... the list goes on.

Definitely not a sterile box, Richard and Bryan have put a lot of energy into making everything perfect for their guests. They greeted us when we arrived with walnut bread and champagne, what a welcome! They gave us a tour of their other rental property (their house is sandwiched between the two rentals), which also looks great!

Wonderful home in wine country!

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Bryan are the most wonderful host of this amazing home! The house is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean with all the comforts of home. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms spa like! The kitchen has everything you need to make a meal, even though the area has the most amazing restaurants. We were able to easily get to all the sights in the area, amazing wineries, redwood forest and the Pacific Ocean. This was a dream vacation! I would recommend this home and these wonderful host!!!

A 25th anniversary to remember

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Side-by-Side. Bryan and Richard are so accommodating and take pride in their properties. The home was immaculate and beautifully decorated. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and loved the wine and banana bread. You really can't go wrong here. The location is great: only 15 mi to the coast and close to everything in the Russian River area. The redwoods are amazing and right outside your door. Plus you are close to Armstrong Woods & the lovely roads that wind through the redwoods. It's so helpful to have Bryan and Richard next door to help answer questions (or show us how to light the grill). You won't regret this one.

Wonderful Wine Country Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just spend a peaceful get-away weekend at the charming house in the middle of the beautiful redwood forest. The house was very clean and pleasantly decorated. Cozy bedrooms with very comfortable beds made our stay very restful and relaxing. Bryan and Richard, we enjoyed your lovely home with outside hot tub among the lavish foliage. We definitely will be back!

Amazing Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four childhood friends met up for a Girl's Only Weekend--we were charmed by Bryan and Richard's attention to detail from the moment our car pulled into the driveway. The gardens were in full bloom, the house well appointed for any and everything. We were touched by the attention to detail: a bottle of wine waiting for us, some homemade banana bread, robes in each of the rooms, the list is really endless. We highly recommend this VRBO home and look forward to another visit in the future.
